ASCENDtials

Experiential and Service Learning Programs

ASCENDtials is a forward-thinking organization dedicated to empowering individuals for societal change. Inspired by the ancient African ideology of Maat, we focus on self-awareness, natural law, and balance. Through awareness and action, we identify and transform oppressive structures, striving for a world where everyone can thrive.

In this manner, we are creating opportunities for our youth to gain skills that will make them more conscious about society and nature and equip them with skills, making them more competitive in the job market, as self starters existing to solve problems, rather than participate in and create them.
